Nadi trio out

Maciu Malo
Saturday, February 15, 2014

NADI suffered a major blow ahead of its Skipper Tuna National League game clash against Labasa this weekend.

The side will miss the services of its top midfielders Munit Krishna, William Valentine and Australia-bound Uraia Loki.

Team president Navneeda Goundar said the trio had been instrumental for the Jestsetters in their unbeaten two league games over the past two weeks.

He said a few players had been tested to fill in the vacuum left by Loki and the injured duo of Krishna and Valentine.

Gounder said the absence of the midfielders would affect the team's performance against the Babasiga Lions.

"This game will be tough for the team not only because of the absence of our midfielders but, more importantly, we are playing on Labasa's home turf," he said.

"We don't have any specialist midfielder at the moment but we have tested some players."
